Meet your Manchester Hosts

He enjoys going to gigs and festivals, comedy, watching and occasionally playing football, travelling and photography. Having lost his mum 7 years ago, he struggled to talk about his feelings to other people, so is looking forward to meeting people in the same situation, make new friends and to help and learn from each other.

An only child, she was brought up by her
grandparents and her mother: effectively three parents! When her grandparents died, she found Let’s Talk About Loss and has been a part of the Manchester group since its first meet-up.

In her free time, she enjoys hiking, reading and creative writing. She believes in talking through taboos and is really excited to become a host and continue making new friends who talk about loss.

She enjoys live music, good food, and firmly believes that a good brew can solve any problem. 

Having lost her Dad three years ago, she found it extremely helpful talking to people who found themselves in a similar position. She is looking forward to showing others that same level of support and helping them through their own journey.

Got questions or want to speak to us?


How will I know where you are?

Our meet up Hosts will be wearing white t-shirts with Let’s Talk About Loss written on them, so you can spot us in a crowd!

Will everyone be sad?

Definitely not. Although we’ve all been bereaved, we aim to have lots of fun at meet ups and chat about lots of things, not just grief. You won’t be asked or expected to share your grief story unless you want to.

What will we do?

Most of our meet ups are activity based, so we are doing something and not just sitting around chatting. We hope you’ll have lots of fun!

How do I sign up?

You don’t need to tell us you’re coming along – feel free to just turn up! If you want to chat to someone before coming along, email us using the form on this page, and we can always meet you beforehand.
